8 Reasons to Convert your Fireplace to Natural Gas

Wood-burning fireplaces are popular features in homes, but the hassles that come with them can outweigh any advantages. If you’re tired of hauling wood and cleaning up ashes, consider installing a gas fireplace insert into your existing masonry fireplace. Here are eight reasons why.

1. Looks just like wood

With advances in gas burner technology, the natural gas flames resemble their wood-burning counterparts. But, you no longer have to waste time bringing in logs or cleaning up the mess they leave behind.

2. No more cold drafts

Where allowed, direct-vent inserts intake air from outside and are sealed to stop the cold air from entering the house. Direct-vent inserts are also considered safer and more economical and come in a wide variety of styles.

3. Fireplaces are smarter

Gas inserts come with remote controls and can be programmed to turn on and off at specific times. They can also be programmed to maintain specific temperatures.

4. High-efficiency heat

With innovations like ceramic radiant heating technology, multi-speed blowers and multi-room distribution kits, your home heating costs are lower. Gas inserts also have efficiency ratings between 70% and 85%.

5. Year-round ambiance

Inserts with a broad heating capacity range and multi-stage turn down control allow you to enjoy the fireplace even on warmer days, extending your fireplace season.

6. Customized style

Fireplace manufacturers offer a wide range of designer vignette faceplates, veneers and interior panels, as well as fire bed options such as artisan log sets, stones and crystals. You can create the look you want.

7. Maximum comfort

Consider an insert with a variable-speed blower, which helps distribute heat into the far corners of the room and beyond. You can adjust the speed as needed.

8. A better view

With new technology, fireplace manufacturers maximize viewing areas of gas inserts. You’ll be able to see the flames from anywhere in the room.

Also, because natural gas is clean burning, you don’t have to worry about polluting the environment with soot. Another plus is the potential increase in your home’s value. Make the switch to natural gas today.
